With only three more days as a single farmer, I am here and waiting for rain. Last week I got the rye grass planted (with the help of my Dad) and yesterday I over-seeded with white clover. Tonight and tomorrow we in drought plagued Central Mississippi have a forecasted 100% chance of rain. Right now, we have one of those wonderful high blue sky days that lures you outside with the perfect mid-seventies temperatures and light breeze. Maybe it will rain, tonight, but now it is just as dry as it has been all summer. I will be disappointed if the forecast is wrong. I have worked so hard getting the winter grass seeds sown before today.
I will go out and finish sowing seeds for the winter garden when I get through here. I am planting lettuce, spinach, sugar snap peas, potatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, and radishes. I only plant in the raised beds for the winter because they are easier to protect from the few truly cold days.
